Beauty in the Dissonance (BITD) was created to inspire and empower people facing mental health conditions.
WHO WE ARE
Psychiatrists or therapists write all of the mental health articles you'll find, but you rarely find actual people living with the conditions telling you their stories. Mental health articles will have you feeling like you've hit the end of the road, that your journey is over, or that you'll never get better. We're here to burst that bubble and show you that the journey is just beginning.
BITD is founded on honesty and transparency; while thriving with a mental health condition is possible, it's not always easy. We need to share our stories as they are; there are no rose-colored glasses here.
We focus our stories on mental health and the impacts of everyday life. Whether you were diagnosed with a mental health condition or are looking for ways to maintain good mental wellness, you have a home here and are not alone.
BECOME A CONTRIBUTOR
No two individuals are alike, which could not be truer regarding mental illness. Think about it. How many of those symptoms from your first Google search do you experience? Help us through honesty and transparency, and show others what life with mental illness really looks like. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
